      Aged 61 yrs, 5 mo, & 3 d.


      Info added by poster:
      Birth: Oct. 17, 1824
      Death: Jun. 20, 1886
      Son of George and Sarah Elizabeth Phillips Waggoner. Wife Margaret Jane Vance, daughter of Thomas and Mary Catherine Phillips Vance.
      Married July 16, 1848 in Brown County, Indian
      After the death of Margaret in 1882 he married Lucinda Honecut February 24, 1883 in Brown County, Indiana.

      Note: Calculation of birth date backwards using 61 yrs, 5 mo & 3 days gives date of 17 Jan 1825. Someone has read the inscription as 61 yrs, 8 mo & 3 d to arrive at the Oct 17, 1824 birth date.
      The photo is very clear and legible. There can be no mistaking the reading of the yrs, mos, & days engraved there. The "5" in "5 M" does not in any way resemble the "8" in the year "1886".
